Special Notice Regarding COBRA Premium Assistance

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), a new federal law, may entitle you to elect FREE COBRA continuation coverage for a limited time. Those who may be eligible will receive documentation from the Fund Office in April. A Special Notice on the 100% COBRA subsidy can be found here.

Additional Benefits for Union Members

Have you heard of the Midwest Coalition of Labor (MCL)? This organization was founded to provide Union members free access to certain services such as roadside assistance, legal advice, residential property tax appeals and credit consulting and repair. You can also receive deep discounts or flat rates on personal services, like tax preparation and legal fees.

In addition, the MCL has partnered with SSDC Services Corp., a national advocacy firm specializing in Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits and Medicare coordination. SSDC identifies where you or your dependent(s) are eligible and becomes your Advocate for filing and obtaining these benefits.

Only Union members can access these benefits!

Check out the MCL Retiree Brochure or the MCL Active Brochure for details!

Limited Office Access: The Fund Office will not be hosting in-person meetings for members here at our office. As always, help with applications is available via telephone; please call (312) 787-9455, to schedule a phone appointment. During this period of precautions, we will now accept scanned copies or photos of documents necessary to complete your benefit applications and to provide coverage to new dependents (marriage licenses, birth certificates, driver’s license, etc.). Once completed, applications should be sent via First Class mail

We hope you and your loved ones stay healthy.
